Hello, I have been a PC user forever. I had never used a Mac until yesterday's visit to the Apple Store. I liked it, but I have an incredible deal lined up for a PC laptop. Here is what I am thinking about getting 2.0 Gig MacBook (White) w/ 80 Gig HD; $1244 - Get 2 Gig RAM upgrade from OWC $220 -Free Ipod Nano (Have one, but another free one isn't bad) - Free Printer (already have one, but since it is free) The PC: -Dell Laptop (Inspiron) - 14.1" Screen - 2 Gig - 120 Gig HD -WIreless Net + Bluetooth -Built in webcam -Video Card -2 Yr Warranty -Virus Software - WIndows XP -Weighs a little less than 5 lbs. - Upgraded Battery - Dual Layer DVD Burner For $1400. (Retail is $2175) Is the MacBook (and its great software) worth the premium over this 'more powerful' PC? MacBook: Pros: -Never used a Mac before -Cool software - No viruses - Cool design -Free Nano -Free Printer -Apple reliability Cons: -Costs more -Never used a Mac before -Smaller screen than Dell -Smaller HD than Dell -Weighs more than Dell - Less battery lifespan than Dell Thanks guys. Looking to make a purchase this week.
